With the ongoing review of the Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag, has gone so well thus far, that it was time to increase the testing.  Therefore, may I introduce you to the Timbuk2 Snoop Camera Insert.  An add-on to their Classic Messenger Bag, available in various sizes to fit whichever messenger bag you have, it’s perfect for those of us carrying a growing amount of camera equipment.  The thought of the Snoop Camera Insert is especially appealing to photographers who also carry their laptop with them.  Currently Just{elation} is testing a medium Classic Messenger Bag, and the medium Snoop Camera Insert fits perfectly inside the large compartment of the messenger bag.

The Snoop Camera Insert is very simple looking on the outside, with a grey nylon exterior and a webbed loop on the back side to help with carrying or lifting it out of the messenger bag.  On the inside is where the magic happens though, with a bold blue soft tricot knitted fabric which helps polish your camera equipment every time you use it.  There’s 4 included velcro secured dividers, allowing you to keep the equipment organized.  There are 2 large and 2 small dividers with velcro on each end which secure snuggly to the tricot fabric lining.  All of the sides and dividers are padded to help keep things safe in transit.

There seems to be countless advantages to doubling up the uses of your Classic Messenger Bag and using the Snoop Camera Insert.  You’ll love all the organization with the small pockets, pen organizers, etc that the messenger bag includes, keeping SD cards, business cards, extra batteries, etc organized in them at all times while allowing the Snoop Insert to be dedicated to holding your camera body, lenses, and flashes.  This also allows you to easily use the handle to remove the expensive camera parts and keep them locked away when not in use.  Combining the uses also allows you to keep your laptop with you and your camera equipment, while some camera specific bags do have laptop sleeves, this system seems to offer incredible versatility.

This will be an ongoing review as Just{elation} gets to use it more, updates coming in 1, 2, 4, 6, and 12 months!

Update: The Timbuk2 Snoop Camera Insert continues to be my go-to camera bag.  It’s awesome to keep my camera equipment along with my 15″ Macbook Pro in the same case (though if I loose it I’ll likely jump off a cliff I’ll be so sad!!!)…it’s the most convenient option I’ve worked with ever…and keeps me from needing several different bags.  After nearly 4 months of use, it shows very little wear, much like the Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag I use it in!
